Dear Galatic Advisors,


We’re building a new set of machines to replace our current local galaxy instance (prod, dev and db VMs running CentOS against a local SLURM cluster with local storage, want to start using wsgi), and are planning to start using Ansible, instead of doing everything by hand. Looking through the wikis and postings, we see many difference points of departure. Can anyone outline the pros and cons of these various choices or provide any recommendations?


Is it best to use an edited version of this:


Or this:


I also see a 3rd version that is linked from the “setting up your own galaxy” page




Ideally, we’d like to benefit from updates to the upstream package. All three seem to be actively supported.
